month we saw huge inflows into u.s. stock etfs. $18 billion versus $3 billion in august. in addition to which this entire rally since the end of june has been predicated on multiple expansion. that's positive sentiment. none of this has anything to do with economic growth. because the fact. matter is, it's just not there. profit growth isn't there, either. we're going to be down 2.6%. i think sentiment, actually, is way stronger than what the earnings would suggest it should be. >> scott, give us some takeaways of what people should do here as they look forward earning season. >> well, michele, i think, you know, we're in the second leg of this cyclical bull market. they need to be looking for opportunities to buy consumer discretionary stocks, technology stocks, even material stocks, which have gotten pounded here. i'm looking for continued expansion here in the states. continued expansion globally. people need to be positioned for that. we're going to see economic growth in the u.s., i think at least through 2014. i think the market is going to grind higher over the course of time.
